It is possible that the lining in the water heater has been damaged causing the water to corrode the iron from the tank itself. Have your cold water fed to the heater tested for iron and the hot water after the heater tested for iron. If not present in the cold feed water but is in the hot water then the source is the metal of the water heater tank. Solution: Replace the water heater.
